ACCT Accredited Open Enrolment Certification Workshops
Practitioner certification workshops offer participants a broad perspective of the current adventure facility industry. Ranging from basic skills like PPE, course inspection, knot tying, and belay skills to advanced skills in risk management, facilitation, work at height, and rescue skills, our courses prepare participants entering the industry or looking to further develop and enhance existing skills.
Successful candidates will be able to use the knowledge and skills acquired in these workshops to positively contribute to the overall risk management of a site’s adventure facility. We also offer a full range of recertification workshops for practitioners with current certifications.
